S. / BY RAYMOND LAHU |(l)n[ted Press Staff Correspondent) ', WASHINGTON, Jan. 10.-— Con- press was warned today that thousands of firms faced bankruptcy \mloss prompt steps arc taken to putlaw union claims to more than $4.000,CCO,OCO 1« portal-to-portnl pa". ' The warning was sounded by ^cn Homer Cnpcliart, R.. Ind.. he JTOS the first witness as a Senate Judiciary Sub:ommittce opened hearings on' legislation lo thro'.v £hc portal suits out of court. . 'Asserting that not a firm In a hundred had money to meet the flaims, Capehart said: "We avc facing a national problem which. (f jiot solved promptly, may have disastrous - consequences on production and commerce." J. The three-man subcommittee bc- ^an hearings as the Senate Labor Committee, headed by Sen. Robert •A. Taft, R., O., assembled to Ue- 'cldc how it will proceed 'with a Jong list of other bills aimed at .labor unions. Segments of ihe coni- 'hnttco appeared to be pulling :n ihree directions on the procedure Jo be followed. i Capeharl told the judiciary unit •that back pay claims filed ngainst Industrial firms would "far ex- £eed" S5.COO.COO.000. Those suits have i>:cn filed, mostly by CIO affiliates. •to claim back overtime pay for 1 the time spent by employes walk|- )ng to and preparing for their jobs ft "while on employers' properties. '* .*• Workers Wculcl I.OSR Jobs * As a result of a Supreme Court Decision last June, a flood of suits was filed under the Wage-Hour Law, which requires that double Jlrirnages be paid for violations. [ Capehart said the lawsuits threatened the existence of thou- fainds of business nnd industrial firms. J. "In the first place." he said. 1'The amount of the alleged 1 liability in each instance is so stng- Eering that not one company in a hundred would bj able to meet It..... : ."Until Industry and business know the extent -of their liability. thev are in no position to undertake contemplated reconversion programs essential to the maintenance,, of national prosperity." ; ( If the industrial firms fail, he said', the .workers themselves will ~5iiffer. ; Capehart argued that the government, too. would lose revenue ^through reduced taxes paid by ih< companies nnd through increased xrosts of goods bought during thr >'ar. He did not see how Congrcs could " consider lax reductions un less it blocked the'portal-to-portn ; suits by other legislation. Arkansas Editor Dies - MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark.

Written f"r NEA Service Before a blood disorder^ can be rented the physician must make in accurate diagnosis of the condition. This Is the reason that io!f- nedicnlion with blood remeciV is ol so little value; the patient can .carccly expect to guess the diag- losis In his own case. While transfusions are of value n certain blood conditions, they ire not a cure-all. The blood consists of a circulating liquid (plns- na> which contains slightly less than its own volume of three different kinds of cells, nny one of which may be deficient. The red cells, numbering about five million in every cubic millimeter of blood, absorb oxygen ns they pass through the lungs «nd deposit it, in the tissues. When red cells are destroyed or lost, or when production of them fails, a state of anemia exists. It is 'estimated that one woman of every five has .n blood condition which is, or which borders on, anemia. When red blood cell production fails in the marrow, the anemia may be corrected by Injections of liver extract. More recently, synthetic folic acid has been used in cases In which liver extract is not sufficiently effective. Iron is administered in anemia case.'. ',vhcn excessive amounts of blood have been lost through icmorrhagc. Expectant mothers may develop an iron deficiency when tlleir store Is scanty, lor they must supply ron to their unborn infants. WHITE CELLS K1GHT GEKMS The white blood cells help to de- fend the bc<ly against Infection by destroying bacteria. When white cclLs nrc deficient, ri blood transfusion or bone marrow stimulant is indicated. The third type ol blood cell, called a platelet, aids in Ihe clotting 01 the blood. In,bleeding pur- pura which is causbd by a deficiency of platelets, transfusion, or, In some cases, removal of the spleen, may correct the condition. QUESTION: I have been told I have non-tropieal sprue. What Is this? ANSWER: Non-tropical sprue is appnrcntly the same : fts tropical sprue. It is a form or deficiency disease which may be corrected by special diet, liver extract injections, or folic acid.
